International Conference on Gastroenterology 2020

Theme: Advances in Gastroenterology & Endoscopy

02nd Dec-03rd Dec 2020    Amsterdam , Netherlands

<p>A surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder, Which involves inserting a minute video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to inspect the inner part of the abdomen and remove the gallbladder, Laparoscopic removal is the new advanced made in the field of cholecystectomy and has become the procedure of choice when cholecystectomy is prescibed. This is the newer, less invasive technique for performing cholecystectomy.</p>

<p>SBS or generally referred to as short gut is an abnormal absorption disorder caused by lack of a functional small intestine. In its initial stages the primary symptom can be discovered in the form of diarrhea, which ultimately results in dehydration, malnutrition, and weight loss. As the condition progresses other usual symptoms may include bloating, heartburn, worn-out, lactose intolerance, and rancid stool. This condition in adults can translate to as incurable, but many advancements are being made.</p>

<p>It is the late stage of scarring (also known as fibrosis) of the liver which can be caused by many types of liver diseases and conditions, Each time the organ is injured by any disease, exorbitant alcohol consumption or any other cause it tries to repair itself naturally, In this process, the organ develops scar tissue, as cirrhosis progresses, more & more scar tissues are formed, making it more difficult for the liver to function to its full potential. Advanced liver disease, with subsequent complications, requires targeted treatment.</p>

<p>Endoscopic ultrasound-guided biliary drainage (EUS-BD), is a negligible procedure to examine and trace digestive and lung diseases. A specially designed endoscope uses high-frequency sound waves to capture detailed images of the inner lining and walls of the digestive tract and the chest, even the nearby organs such as the pancreas, liver, and lymph nodes are captured. Choice of approach route and drainage method depends on individual anatomy, underlying disease, and location of the biliary stricture.</p>

<p>The colon present in the body helps absorb water and nutrients from the food we intake. It is also the part where the human stool is formed. In general a colonoscopy helps the doctors to examine the entire colon. But sometimes the descending colon also referred to as the sigmoid colon demands close inspection, that’s when the doctor will recommend for a sigmoidoscopy to be done. Flexibile sigmoidoscopy is the further advancement of traditional colonoscopy methods.</p>

These types of diseases include a varying group of diseases related to the liver and biliary system which are affected by various causes such as viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections, toxic chemicals, alcohol consumption, malnutrition, weak metabolism & cardiac failure. The two most commonly seen diseases of the liver across the world are viral hepatitis and cirrhosis.

<p>Around the world, there are a variety of disorders of the pancreas which include pancreatitis in acute, chronic & hereditary form, and pancreatic cancer. The evaluation of the diseases found in this organ can be difficult due to the isolated location of the pancreas. Even so there are multiple methods to evaluate the organ, the initial tests of the pancreas include a common physical examination, which is considered difficult since the pancreas is placed deep in the abdomen close to the spine.</p>

<p>It is the surgical approach used in the management of necrotising pancreatitis, a condition resulted by the inflammation of the organ. Acute pancreatitis is a critical condition, which often is found with severe and sometimes life threatening complications. Some of the mild cases can be managed with timid therapies, such as aggressive hydration, antibiotic treatments. The severe cases most likely require intensive care admission and regular surgical intervention such as necrosectomy.</p>

Colorectal carcinoma or commonly known as colorectal cancer is the cancer of the colon or the rectum. The doctors may suggest a colonoscopy to confirm, or an air-contrast barium enema to help examine the condition. Carcinoma sub-types means grouping colorectal cancers based on things like the genetic mutations in the cancer cells, how the cells look and behave, how fast the cells are dividing, and features of the tumor itself.

A surgical approach used to remove the appendix from the abdomen. It can be executed either with a small incision or better known as surgical cut, on the abdomen or laparoscopic; a definitive technological advancement referred as an keyhole surgery. The biggest advantage of single incision of technique is in its cosmetic outcome; it being referred to as a scar less surgery. The surgical technique for this procedure is not yet standardized, with great institutional procedural variation.

The ventral hernia usually arises in the abdominal wall where a previous surgical cut was made, or an surgery was performed. The surgery leaves this area and the abdominal muscles in a weak state; this results in a bulge or a tear. An ideal mesh has sufficient strength, is chemically stable, is easily sterilized, resists infection, is non-carcinogenic, limits inflammatory foreign body reactions, and heals well into the abdominal wall

The term used to state the presence of gallstones in the biliary ducts of the liver. Treatment for this condition is usually surgical, non-invasive methods are yet to be developed. This condition is rarely found in the western countries, but is prevalent in the eastern parts of Asia. The gallstones are normally found close to the left and right hepatic ducts. Hepatectomy is the scientific advancement in treating hepatolithiasis.

Peptic ulcer disease is widely known as a condition in which there are painful sores or ulcers in the inner lining of the stomach or the first part of the small intestine. In theory, a thick layer of mucus protects the stomach lining from the effect of its own digestive juices. Within endoscopy, there are three important developments: Doppler probe-guided lesion assessment, large over-the-scope clips, and haemostatic powders. All of these within the management pathway requires further assessment.

<p>In Barrett's esophagus, the tissue from the tube that connects the mouth and stomach is replaced by tissue similarly found in the intestinal lining. Imaging techniques like portable endoscopy have the advantage of producing an immediate diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus as well as other significant pathologies such as reflux esophagitis and cancer; however, larger studies in non-enriched community screening populations are required to evaluate their feasibility.</p>

Celiac disease is a crucial autoimmune disease that occurs in genetically inclined people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. According to the reports, it is estimated that it is found to be affected by 1 in every 100 people worldwide.In theory when people with this condition eat gluten, their body scales an immune response that attacks and damages the small intestine. These attacks ultimately lead to damage on the villi; small fingerlike projections that are found across the lining of the small intestine, responsible to promote nutrient absorption.

Hepatomegaly is the condition where the patient has an enlarged liver. The liver is the largest internal organ of the human body. Hepatomegaly is prominent in patients with chronic right-sided heart failure, but it may occur rapidly in acute heart failure. When hepatomegaly occurs acutely, the liver is usually tender. In patients with considerable tricuspid regurgitation, a prominent systolic pulsation of the liver, attributable to an enlarged right atrial V wave, is often noted.

Barium meal is a diagnostic test used to detect abnormalities of the esophagus, stomach and small bowel using X-ray imaging. X-rays can only highlight bone and other radio-opaque tissues and would not usually enable visualization of soft tissue. However, the infusion of the contrast medium barium sulfate, coats the lining of the digestive tract, allowing accurate X-ray imaging of this part of the abdomen. The scientific advancement for this test, barium swallow is a dedicated test of the pharynx, esophagus, and proximal stomach, and may be performed as a single or double contrast study.

Gastrointestinal cancer is a term for the large group of cancers that affect the digestive tract and the digestive system. Cancer pertaining to the digestive system is detected in various forms: Oesophageal Cancer, Liver Cancer, Stomach Cancer, Gallbladder & Biliary Tract Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Gastro-Intestinal Stromal Tumour, Colorectal Cancer, Small Bowel Cancer. conventional chemotherapy is palliative and produces complete responses in only a few patients. Clinical research has focused on the evaluation of investigation of new drugs, Unfortunately, the results of recent phase II studies of new agents have been disappointing. The exception is CPT-11.

Gastrectomy is the excision of a part of the stomach, or in some cases can be the complete removal of the stomach bag. With the increasing expertise and experience of oncology surgeons in the minimally invasive surgery for gastric cancer, the indication for laparoscopic gastrectomy is expanding to advanced cases. Many studies have demonstrated the benefits of minimally invasive surgery, including reduced risk of surgery-related injury, reduced blood loss, less pain, and earlier recovery.

The esophagus is the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. Achalasia is a fatal condition that affects the esophagus. The lower esophageal sphincter is a muscular ring that closes off the esophagus from the stomach. Achalasia Cardia is a rare neuro degenerative disorder of the esophagus resulting in defective peristalsis and impaired relaxation of lower esophageal sphincter. The exact reason for this achalasia is not known.

Track 1: Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

A surgical procedure to remove your gallbladder, an elliptical-shaped organ that's situated below your liver on the upper right side of the abdomen. The gallbladder collects and stores bile, a digestive fluid produced with the liver. A cholecystectomy is a general surgery, and carries a shorter list of complications.. In most cases, the patient can go home the same day of your cholecystectomy. This procedure involves inserting a minute video camera and special surgical tools through four small incisions to inspect the inner part of the abdomen and remove the gallbladder. Doctors refer to this as a Laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In some cases, a single large incision may be made, to remove the gallbladder. This is known as an open cholecystectomy.

Track 2: Short Bowel Syndrome in Adults

SBS or generally referred to as short gut is an abnormal absorption disorder caused by lack of a functional small intestine. In its initial stages the primary symptom can be discovered in the form of diarrhea, which ultimately results in dehydration, malnutrition, and weight loss. As the condition progresses other usual symptoms may include bloating, heartburn, worn-out, lactose intolerance, and rancid stool. Other major complications can be indicated in the form of anemia and kidney stones. The most likely cause of this condition is due to the surgical removal of a large portion of the small intestine. Further causes can include damage to the small intestine from any other means and having an underdeveloped or an abnormally short intestine at birth.

Track 3: Therapy of Liver Cirrhosis

It is the late stage of scarring (also known as fibrosis) of the liver which can be caused by many types of liver diseases and conditions, Most commonly found liver conditions such as hepatitis, fatty liver disease. Each time the organ is injured by any disease, exorbitant alcohol consumption or any other cause it tries to repair itself naturally, In this process, the organ develops scar tissue, as cirrhosis progresses, more & more scar tissues are formed, making it more difficult for the liver to function to its full potential. Advanced form of cirrhosis is a life-threatening condition. The damage done by cirrhosis typically can't be undone. But if the condition is diagnosed at an early stage and the underlying cause is treated, further damage can be restricted and rarely, reversed.

A specially designed endoscope uses high-frequency sound waves to capture detailed images of the inner lining and walls of the digestive tract and the chest, even the nearby organs such as the pancreas, liver, and lymph nodes are captured. And when combined with a procedure formerly known as fine-needle aspiration, this allows the doctor to sample fluid, which is also known as biopsy and part of the tissue from your abdomen or the chest for analysis. EUS combined with fine-needle aspiration can be a less invasive alternative to a traditionally exploratory surgery.

Track 9: Colorectal Carcinoma sub-types

Colorectal carcinoma or commonly known as colorectal cancer is the cancer of the colon or the rectum. The doctors may suggest a colonoscopy to confirm, or an air-contrast barium enema to help examine the condition. The doctors may also order an abdominal and pelvic CT or an MRI or an endorectal ultrasound to help evaluate the condition of the cancer and look for any signs of spreading. Various factors depending on the size, extent and stage of the cancer, may require a surgical cure or assessment. The most advanced cases of this type of cancer may require radiation therapy such as external beam therapy to gradually kill the cancer cells. The doctor may also prescribe chemotherapy as an after-math process to decrease the chance of the tumor returning elsewhere in the body.

It is a surgical approach used to remove the appendix from the abdomen. It can be executed either with a small incision or better known as surgical cut, on the abdomen or laparoscopically; a definitive technological advancement referred as an keyhole surgery. In this series of surgical assessments, acute appendicitis is the most commonly found surgical emergency with a lifetime repentency of 6%. Treatment for this condition is appendicectomy. There are other underlying causes for appendicectomy generally seen as suspicion of acute appendicitis, appendix mass and tumor of the appendix.

 Track 11: Advancements of mesh in Ventral Hernia Repair

The ventral hernia usually arises in the abdominal wall where a previous surgical cut was made, or an surgery was performed. The surgery leaves this area and the abdominal muscles in a weak state; this results in a bulge or a tear. The same way an inner tube pushes through a mutilated tire, the inner lining of the abdomen pushes through the affected area of the abdominal wall to form a balloon-like sac. This allows a loop of intestines or other abdominal contents to rush into the sac. If these abdominal contents get plunged within the sac, they can become confiscated. This could lead to a potentially consequential problem that might require an immediate surgery.

Track 12: Hepatectomy to treat Hepatolithiasis

This is a term used to state the presence of gallstones in the biliary ducts of the liver. Treatment for this condition is usually surgical, non-invasive methods are yet to be developed. This condition is rarely found in the western countries, but is prevalent in the eastern parts of Asia. The gallstones are normally found close to the left and right hepatic ducts. The causes of this disease are mostly crudely diagnosed, but it is suspected that genetics play a vital role, the diet and the environmental causes may also contribute to this condition. According to various studies it is found to be more common in those of low socio- economic status who suffer from malnutrition. And the research shows that this disease typically strikes between the 50 and 70 year age group, with neither men nor women more likely to acquire it.

Track 13: Endoscopic therapy for Peptic Ulcer Disease

Peptic ulcer disease is widely known as a condition in which there are painful sores or ulcers in the inner lining of the stomach or the first part of the small intestine. In theory, a thick layer of mucus protects the stomach lining from the effect of its own digestive juices. But many factors can reduce the effectiveness of this protective layer, allowing ulcers to frequently occur.

You are more likely to develop an ulcer if you:

  • Have an existing history of liver, kidney or lung disease
  • Drink alcohol regularly
  • Smoke

In Barrett's esophagus, the tissue from the tube that connects the mouth and stomach is replaced by tissue  similarly found in the intestinal lining. Barrett's esophagus is frequently diagnosed in people with a  long-term gastro esophageal reflux disease; a chronic ejection of acid from the stomach into the lower esophagus. Only a small percentage of people with this condition will develop Barrett's esophagus. Barrett's esophagus is directly associated with an increased risk of developing esophageal cancer. Although the risk is minimal, it's necessary to get regular checkups for precancerous cells. Because if these precancerous cells are discovered at early stages, they can be treated to prevent esophageal cancer.

Track 15: Epidemiology & Refractory Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is a crucial autoimmune disease that occurs in genetically inclined people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. According to the reports, it is estimated that it is found to be affected by 1 in every 100 people worldwide. Two and a half million Americans are left undiagnosed and are held at risk for long-term health complications. In theory when people with this condition eat gluten, their body scales an immune response that attacks and damages the small intestine. These attacks ultimately lead to damage on the villi; small fingerlike projections that are found across the lining of the small intestine, responsible to promote nutrient absorption. When the villi gets damaged, nutrients cannot be absorbed properly into the body.

Track 16: Causes of Hepatomegaly in a Heart Failure

Hepatomegaly is the condition where the patient has an enlarged liver. The liver is the largest internal organ of the human body. It helps your body in digesting fats, fight off infections, produce proteins and hormones, control blood clotting, break down medicine and toxins. The liver is also the only internal organ that can grow back after undergoing a surgery, which makes live liver donations possible. If a portion of the liver is donated, it will regenerate to its original size. The transplanted portion will also grow. Most of the symptoms that cause hepatomegaly can impair your liver’s ability to function and help your body.

Track 17: Barium Meal for evaluation of Pharynx

Barium meal is a diagnostic test used to detect abnormalities of the esophagus, stomach and small bowel using X-ray imaging. X-rays can only highlight bone and other radio-opaque tissues and would not usually enable visualization of soft tissue. However, the infusion of the contrast medium barium sulfate, coats the lining of the digestive tract, allowing accurate X-ray imaging of this part of the abdomen. Before a barium meal test is performed, the duodenum needs to be empty to allow clear visualization of structures. A patient may be given a laxative the night before the procedure to ensure the small bowel is empty at the time of the test, which is usually performed on an empty stomach.

Track 19: Gastrectomy for Gastric Cancer

Gastrectomy is the excision of a part of the stomach, or in some cases can be the complete removal of the stomach bag. There are 3 main types of Gastrectomy:

  • A partial gastrectomy which is the removal of a part of the stomach. Usually the lower half is removed
  • A full gastrectomy is the removal of the complete stomach
  • A sleeve gastrectomy is the removal of the left side of the stomach. Which is usually performed as a part of a surgery for weight loss

Removing your stomach doesn’t take away your ability to digest liquids and foods completely. However, you may need to make several lifestyle changes after the procedure.

Track 20: Affects of Achalasia in Cardiology

The esophagus is the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. Achalasia is a fatal condition that affects the esophagus. The lower esophageal sphincter is a muscular ring that closes off the esophagus from the stomach. Due to the presence of this condition the lower esophageal sphincter fails to open up during swallowing, which it is supposed to do. This leads to the food to be emitted out. This condition can be related to the damaged nerves of the  esophagus. It can also be caused due to any damage caused to the lower esophageal sphincter.

                                                                   MARKET REPORT

 

 

Gastroenterology is the branch of medical sciences related to the stomach, intestines and the organs involved in the process of digestion that starts from the mouth and ends at the anus. It focuses on the digestive system and its disorders, and its effects on other internal organs and how each of them react to the changes occured in the digestive system.

The Gastrointestinal market is expected to record a healthy CAGR of approximately 6.5 % during the forecasted period of next decade. The market is substantially driven by lifestyle changes, leading to various gastrointestinal diseases. According to the National Health Interview Survey in 2017, In the United States alone, 15.3 million adults were diagnosed with ulcers. Other major factors include a hike in the number of surgical treatments and hospitalizations, due to GI diseases, and increasing R&D investments by pharmaceutical companies. However, risk factors, related to the physiological, behavioral, psychosocial, and socio-environmental aspects, restrict the populations from reporting the diseases at an early stage, which reflects the low awareness leading to worsening of the diseases. These risk factors and the increasing number of patent expirations restrict the growth of the gastrointestinal therapeutics market.

 

In recent years, the Asian countries have been witnessing a similar growth trend compared to that of in the western markets, particularly contributing to the increasing economic growth, along with the privatization, technological expertise, infrastructure, and the scale to manage large-scale clinical trials across India, China, Japan, South Korea, and other countries. Stomach-related diseases have shown similar growth characteristics in relevance to the western countries.
